The Donalsonville Lions Club has extended the giving period of its second phase of collecting supplies and donations to be delivered through the Houma, Louisiana Lions Club to storm victims in the Point-Aux-Chenes, Louisiana area.

Additional items are still needed, so the Donalsonville Lions Club has extended the deadline for giving and will now be accepting donations through Friday, November 12.

The Americus Lions Club has also joined the campaign and will be collecting like items in the Sumter County community. Items collected there will be added to those gathered locally for distribution to Louisiana. 

The southern Louisiana area was hit very hard by Hurricane Ida, and countless residents lost their homes and everything they owned. In phase one, the Donalsonville
Lions Club focused on the collection of cleaning supplies, personal items, food, and disposable diapers, and  all items collected were delivered to the Houma, Louisiana Lions Club for distribution to a grateful community.

Items still needed include cleaning supplies, school supplies and new clothing.  Infant and kids clothes are really needed, as are socks in all sizes, underwear all sizes, towels, linens, and pillows. New clothing items are being requested because of the lack of ability to wash and sanitize items due to the virus. No water or used clothing is being accepted at this time.

The club requests residents to drop off  items at the former fire station facility on Woolfork Avenue in downtown Donalsonville. Items may be dropped off Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturdays. 

For additional information contact Lion Taylor at 703-981-9006 or Lion Blanks at 229-400-5228.
